Haven't posted in a while, but I can assure you work (paid work) and work (pre-production work) couldn't get any more... work-ier! Christmas and New Years have been a blast, but now it's back to reality.
I'll have to post what I've been working on later on today (as I'm in work paid work currently!) so I thought I'd do a bit of research into stretchy IK setups! Also known as "Stretchy Bones". This useful video (well it visually looks useful [there's no speakers on this computer!!]) seems easy enough to follow.
It's cool in Maya, because whenever you create something, or generally do anything in Maya it documents it in the Mel script, so I can easily generate a script regarding... just about anything! Easy as that! Cool huh? Will have to upload a few videos to show you what I mean.
Until then, it's been 2D work, like turnarounds and Alien bones setups. :)
Just found a "Seamless IK FK rig" video. I'm in awe. I'd want my rigs to look this good!
Haven't got time to watch it all so I'll post it here to watch later. I'm going to give this a go tonight I reckon! :)
